If you are anything like me, when you need to bring a dessert to a friends house, you wait to the last minute to start thinking about what you are going to make! That is why these easy dessert recipes are perfect for you! Think of this as a guide to last minute dessert recipes!

Funny story…So I was sitting at lunch with my friend, Betsy, and we were talking blog! I was showing her some of the desserts that I have made and posted about. She was like “wait… you didn’t make these” and I was all “Yes, I did.”

This went back and forth for a while. You must understand…. I am a god awful cook. My sister, Julie, is the cook of the family. When we were kids I would beg her to bake cookies with me and about 10 minutes in I would get bored and go watch TV.

So, I am not all that offended when people don’t believe that I made the desserts on my blog! I am actually pretty damn proud of myself. The thing you can always guarantee with the recipes that I post – if I made it, ANYONE can!! These easy dessert recipes are simple and idiot proof – scouts honor – now give them a try!!

  1. Could you please contact me or add me to your list .i am interested in a couple of your dessert books and would like to recieve current postings of new recipes from you .thank you

  2. Jenn,

    You fooled me. I had no idea you were a bad cook. Your desserts look AMAZING and I am not kidding. Most people do not have time to make dessert, so why not make it quick and easy. I grew up eating dessert after every meal which is probably why I believe a meal is NOT complete without dessert. We really have to have a little “sweetening” after eat meal in the south. Your easy desserts are perfect.

    Thanks for sharing!
